The Rocket Summer - Do You Feel

Love Lifted Me

Recently I was awakened with thoughts that had been troubling to me for quite some time. They were so strong within me that I could not sleep or even quiet my soul. I prayed for a releif from God but none came. I resorted to the only way I knew, I read my Bible. I started in psalms because I knew this pertained to my thoughts that were the problem. God lead me to the perfect passage, Psalms 63:1! "O God, thou art my God ; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water." I could have not said better what I felt in my heart! I felt desolate surrounded by thoughts of my failures in my walk with Christ. But at that time he lifted me with His holy hand and touched my hurt and aching soul. I now understand why he would not quiet my mind, he needed me to run to him fully trusting in his grace and word. Some hills he will carry you without you even having to ask him. This was a hill I had to get on my knees and plead for his help. He did come to my rescue and has enstilled within me a joy that cannot be even explained! I am a new man! "old things are passed away and All has been made new." God is an Awesome God
